What is it with me at the moment - I must be going through a brown stage - because everything I seem to do is B R O W N.

Well my friend seen this paper and asked me if i could do a vintage/old style card for mother's day for her gran. She liked the vintage photo I used on the anniversary card the other week (see later post) and she wanted something similar. So here it is!!!!

I just love these little postcards that I got from Lakeland ages ago. They seem to work with darker coloured papers and card. The paper is by Kelly Panacci for Sandylion - it is an 'old' paper as the copyright on the back says 2004. I also used a couple of brads by Dovecraft and I printed off the sentiment from my computer.

This one is for me. I wanted a little note card to send to one of my neighbours to say thanks for taking in a few parcels lately. The post round here is terrible at the moment - and it seems any deliveries seem to come around 3pm and 3.30pm - when I leave to go get the kids from school.

The patterned paper is by HOTP - Use 'Em For Anything Chocolate dark, light & white. Other stuff used is from LCS.

So as you can see nothing exciting. Just bog standard cards.

Today was quite a laid back day as the kids were invited to a party at the local bowling alley - it wasnt till 4pm so we did nothing much apart from laze about. My eldest was feeling a lot better today - I could tell first thing this morning, as she was arguing with the little one - so she was 100% better!!!!
